Friendly and helpful staff
WiFi is slow
The beach, the activities, daycare, baby sitter, the breakfast and the services
It's pretty far
Dolphin trip is not well managed and the team there is not good
Breakfast buffet, glutenfree bread offerd in all restaurants, landscape, close dive center, friendly staff.
It was good but we expected more.
Beach area at Al Husn is great, good service (free drinks, snacks, sunglasses cleaning etc.) and our lunch was very tasty. Also good having free canoes to use plus lots of choice for where to sun bathe
Food is extremely expensive in all of the resorts restaurants, hotel feels dated and the staff a little stuffy - also we were (being in our early 30s) the youngest people staying at the hotel by quite some margin.
Great pool Breakfast (at Bandar) Room design / balcony / view Staff Food choices Views and setting on coast / by beach
Somewhat remote - you need hire car ideally Early checkout requirement (12-12.30)
The Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa is the perfect location if your looking for winter sun and have a young family, there is a large soft play area for baby's and toddlers as well as a baby sitting service. they have a bouncy castle and crazy golf too. All the staff are fantastic and in my opinion make this a 5 star resort, I would recommend for families and will return at some point with mine, we visited in early January, with beautiful sunshine every day.
The resort is bed and breakfast making it quite an expensive trip for us traveling from the UK, there is an area away from the hotel with restaurants and gift shops which is great however it would greatly benefit from a small shop selling baby food, nappies,snacks etc, at a reasonable price.
I thought the staff was excellent, the location is nice if you want an isolated, quiet trip and the pool was nice. The hotel was very clean and the room was very comfortable.
I live in the region and, compared to other comparable hotel brands, this Shangri-La wasn't worth the prices charged, especially for food, spa and salon services. They definitely need an upgrade if they want to continue charging such prices. Also, my mother is disabled and I had asked for a later checkout (and by later I asked for an extra 2 hours) simply to ensure that she was comfortable before leaving. I called the front desk to confirm and the woman said no, they were full but we could leave our bags at the front desk (ummm, thanks). When I went downstairs and spoke to someone else, they gave us an extra 3 hours. It would have been nice to just have that from the start. We weren't after taking advantage of the facilities, it literally was for my mother's comfort.
The location, setting and beaches were fabulous. The food was excellent
Went over Xmas and found that prices for rooms were on the very high side for this type of accomodation. Was also unimpressed by the rooms ... They felt small and missing a luxury feel you would expect from the price.
The setting was beautiful. The resort was pretty and the accommodations, over all, were nice.
The bedding was not comfortable;if you are used to a plush mattress. And the food was ok,nothing fabulous.
Excellent cheery helpful staff in the restaurants, mostly Asian and all with good command of English. One in particular (housekeeping) performed outstanding, noticing our duvet on the balcony and bringing a new one with turndown service without request.
everything was great
It was a nice experience in Al Waha hotel among Shangrila-La hotels. view, clean, smiley cooperative staff, allowed us for early check-in and late check-out for free, free drinking water. Free fast WiFi. Different selection of restaurants. Water sports. I will recommend this resort for everyone like to enjoy the stay in Oman.
A bit expensive. A bit far away from the city of Muscat and Airport.
Outstanding service. Plenty of space to escape the crowds on beach and around the grounds.
This surely should be one of the 8 wonders of the world. My only problem was the currency is high and even a sprite was costly. Did not expect that...must prepare your pocket. But otherwise it was just absolutely gorgeous!!!
Pricy dinners, drinks and soft drinks
I liked everything - the location, the hotel facilities, the exclusivity of Al Husn, the staff with its professionalism and positive attitude, the sun, the sea, the rocks... I'd like to mention Rafeek from the breakfast restaurant for his excellent work.
I have recommendations for: - the rain shower head in the bathrooms to be checked for clogging. The mobile shower head allows for better water flow than the one fixed on the ceiling. Doesn't seem right. - Provide a couple of plastic bags in the room which could be used for packing wet swimming suits, beach ware. Since we, and I believe other hotel guests use the beach /pool facility on the morning before departure, having the bags to pack wet things would improve customer's satisfaction.
Friendly staff. Clean
Hotel a bit tired New years eve meal disappointing
The weather the place
The staff was rude not professional to handle clients at their hotel , I felt that they have no idea about respect and professionalism.
The location is great if you are there for the beach. The breakfast was great. Any thing else was ugly.
First thing to start with "Mosquito". This little thing should take the price of the room down to zero. Everything is old you can tell from the color of the bed, chair and the rusty bathroom. The Al Bunder balcony don't actually give you a clear view of the sea. since its not that high even on the higher flower.
Food was excellent. Fantastic views of bay Staff were very helpful Made special arrangements to make my wife feel special.
Queue at reception to book in was a dissappointment. Needs bigger desk or more people on reception not just 2 desk. Limited Parking
Service while resting @ the pool is above expectations. Small details were taken care of.
The room was not prepared for 3 persons as per booking. They asked for a supplement (which is normal) but this was not in proportion. The size of the room was not prepared for a 3rd bed and toiletries were not foreseen for 3.
